Using MAP Results to Differentiate
How well did your students do on the BOY MAP test?
What score do students need to qualify as gifted on the MAP test?
Questions To Consider
- Did the GT students in my class exceed, come close to, or fall short of the GT identification cut score?
- What content do my students need beyond their grade level content to stay at or above the 95th percentile?
- What content do my gifted students need to have reinforced to get back to the 95th percentile?
- Do I have students that are close to scoring in the GT identification range?
Content Needed to Reach the 95% on MAP May Include Concepts and Skills Not Normally Taught at a Given Grade Level.
Grade Up Standards
What is Differentiation?
Depth and Complexity
Depth and Complexity icons are visual prompts, or "visual thinking tools" that help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept and enhance their ability to think critically. They help students dig deeper into a concept (depth) and think about a topic in more complex ways. This Depth and Complexity Newsletter contains all you need to get started.
Depth and Complexity Icons...
- can be an answer to that question..."What are you doing for gifted students?"
- are visual cues (pictures) that guide student thinking and understanding.
- provide a low-prep way to meet individual learning needs.
- align with teaching standards to differentiate for ALL students and often fit with what you are already doing
